different applications for different users in KDE

I run KDE on Mandrake 9.2 and I would like ti customize KDE to show a particular application in one user's kicker/start menu but not another's. For example, my son's kicker menu should have all the games, office and educational apps but without XChat or GAIM, etc etc. How can this be done?

Many thanks,

You can run menudrake as a regular user to change your own menu. To change the menu for everyone, you need to be the root user and select 'system' when it asks.
